Salverton - Ken Jones

This layout was started in Winter 2012 and completed during 2013. It made an appearance in Coventry in 2012 as "work in progress". Starting with a tray that Ken's wife was going to throw out. Ken added a canal, before fixing a roadway around the ouside of the tray. This carries the Tomytec moving road system allowing N gauge buses to operate a shuttle service. Above this extended base board is a small N gauge circular line offering brake van tours.

 

The tray inself has a small Nn3 layout and a transport museum. Work started in February 2013 to lay the Nn3 track - the museum's buildings come from a Cornerstone modular kit donated by a friend. Much of the construction of this layout uses second hand items to keep costs down. The water tower is a second hand Lyddle End item and rolling stock will come from Ken's other layouts. Only the Tomtec Moving bus system was acquired new direct from Japan.

 

The layout measures 50cm x 70cm and even has its own folding legs
